6:00 am
avenue in east palo alto. we also have a developing story on the bay bridge, unfortunately, busy commute spot. a two-car crash just past the metering lights. so where all those lanes merge, you can maybe see it a little bit in our traffic shot. it's a little hard to tell you about there may be a little about the of flashing lights right there. it is slow up the incline so even past the accident it is going to be a slow crawl this morning up towards the "s" curve and traffic is beginning to back up before the pay gates. the metering lights remain off. we'll have more traffic coming up in a bit. several police patrol cars were vandalized in san francisco this morning. >> stephanie chuang has more on the suspect that was arrested this morning. >> reporter: good morning. it was here just a couple of hours ago that police got the report here on the 900 block of bryant street. a woman armed with a knife attacked a man before then turning her attention to this, to the patrol cars parked just a block away smashed in the wind shields of this patrol car
6:01 am
and the two right behind it. these vehicles are out of service right through where they are getting repaired. sergeant malcolm anderson says the homeless man was heading to a shelter for a shower when a woman came out of a tent. the man says she was holding what looked look a butcher knife. he feared for his life, tried to pepper spray her, ran back and heard she was braking breaking windshields. he went to the police station and told them. she was then arrested without incident. she is 42 years old from san francisco. they called an ambulance to check her but she seemed fine. they do not believe that she was drunk but they did find a steak knife not a butcher knife. she was booked shortly into county jail where she faces felony vandalism charges and that's because three windshields broke at about $400
6:02 am
each, that's $1,200. so that's the very latest. a man found shot in the garage of a clubhouse at the east bay dragons motorcycle club has died this morning. anne makovec is in oakland to explain that it might be a retaliation killing. >> reporter: that is the theory that police are working off right now. we did stop by the east bay dragons motorcycle club on international boulevard. we were there earlier this morning and there are candles lit around the entrance. he was shot in the garage. police say the suspected shooter they believe had been kicked out of the club earlier that evening. they think the shooter came back for revenge and shot a manage several times in the garage. the victim died later at the hospital. my first question as a reporter
6:03 am
when i heard about this, could this have anything to do with the shooting over the weekend of the president of the hells angels club down in san jose who was shot in sparks, nevada? and there was some concern by police at that point that there could be other retaliation violence with other motorcycle gangs. police don't think there is any connection between the two shootings. it apps at this appears that this was related to being kicked out earlier in the evening. >> thank you,. washington will help put more cops on the street in the city of oakland. the city is getting money from a federal grant. mayor jean quan will be representative barbara lee at an news conditions this morning to give us details. the grant is coming from the u.s. justice department's community oriented policing services program. st. mary's college is dealing with two reports of sexual assaults in just two weeks. moraga police say the latest

6:17 am
prosecutors played a disturbing recording of the king of pop and director kenny ortega says he tried to intervene and get the singer some serious help. [ slurred speech ] >> he was upset that i didn't allow michael to rehearse the night before and that i sent him home. and he was upset that i, uhm, -- he said he should stop trying to be an amateur doctor and psychologist and be the director and allow michael's health to him. >> reporter: at times inside the courtroom murray was emotional as he cried during
6:18 am
the opening statements. catherine jackson did the same thing hours later when prosecutors played four minutes of jackson's final rehearsal of two songs. later on this morning we are expecting to see them to continue to work their way through that witness list. we are going it hear from an aeg executive as well as one of the bodyguards of michael jackson as well as one of his personal assistants. that's the latest live in downtown l.a. i'm kirk hawkins. now back to you. >> kirk, what was the reaction -- maybe not so much in the courtroom but outside and down in l.a. when we heard michael jackson's voice. he sounded heavily sedated. you played a little excerpt from that. what was the reaction? >> reporter: it was chilling and disturbing. a lot of us in the overflow room above the courtroom, we were shocked. we were told that latoya jackson reached out to her mother, they held hands while they played it for 42 seconds
6:19 am
out. side the courtroom fans said it was something at the didn't want to hear but members of jackson's family were just stunned when they heard all of it and it really came as a surprise. we should also mention that there was a photo released yesterday inside the courtroom. it was of michael jackson on a gurney at ucla. at that point the jackson family clearly stunned. it was something that they really also weren't expecting. >> tough for that family. >> yeah. it was a little disturbing and odd because he is the king of pop. just unreal. >> all right. thanks, kirk. big traffic development this morning. let's kick it over to elizabeth to find out what's going on, on the roads. >> reporter: accident east palo alto on city streets. this is where it is according to our maps. it's there at the intersection of university and bay and we have just learned within the last few minutes this was a fatal accident and it started all with a police chase. i believe we have chopper 5 just arrived over the scene. you can see all the police cars and again this intersection looks like it's completely
6:20 am
blocked. this is at the intersection once again university and bay. in east palo alto. so this was a fatal police pursuit. at this point we don't know if it was the suspect or the police officer who was killed. we know there was a motorcyclist involved and arrest has been made and university avenue is blocked in both directions. so willow road is going to be your best alternate. this was reported around 5:15 this morning when we first got word. and we were told at last check there was a lot of debris on the road so it was going to take a while to clear. obviously now there is going to be a long investigation to get through, as well. so chopper 5 is over the scene. we'll stay there. we have a news crew heading to the scene as well so we are continuing to watch this breaking news on city streets in east palo alto. let's go out toward the bay bridge. it is a busy morning here as well because we're still dealing with an accident. it is just past the metering lights and blocking two lanes still so at last check tow crews were out there trying to clear it. but it is still there. it was a crash involving a couple of different cars so
6:21 am
they turned on the metering lights. that is why you see this early- morning backup. it extends beyond the west grand overcrossing. this is the time when they typically turn on the metering lights we just start to see delays but unfortunately it extends for 15 minutes to get on the bridge. and then again passes the pay gates they still have the two lanes blocked. so yeah, if you need to get somewhere on time, bart may be your best alternate. that is running all trains on schedule. that is a check of traffic. let's update your forecast. hopefully better news in the weather department. >> yeah. it is looking very nice outside. we are going to see lots lot. it's going to be hot, probably the peak of the heat on this wednesday as we are seeing plenty of sunshine all the way to the coastline as we look in toward the afternoon. clear and mild start around the bay area. it is a "spare the air" day. those offshore winds are clearing out your skies nicely in the bay and the interior valleys now. just a couple of patches of fog
6:22 am
at the coastline. sunshine for everyone. mid-90s hotspots inland. 60s at the coast and 80s inside the bay. high pressure ridge in control now. it looks like will start to weaken toward tomorrow. temperatures coming down but temperatures hot. 90s inland, 80s inside the bay and 60s at the beaches. next couple of days, temperatures cool off a few degrees. more cooling over the weekend. we may just start talking about some rain as we look toward next week. that's a look at weather. back to you. >> rain? that's a four-letter word. >> it is a four-letter word. very good. >> might be coming, too. it is 6:22. you talk about no fear. >> beach-goers jump in to help a stranded great white shark. that's right a shark. the risky rescue all caught on tape. look at this. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

good morning. we continue to follow it fatal accident in easts palo alto. university avenue is shut down in both directions between bay road and runny immediate street. we still don't have an estimate time of re-opening but this crash started with a police chase. we are still trying to get pour details. police and fire are on the
6:26 am
scene. a venice beach surfer rescued a baby white shark this weekend. the video went viral. surfers held it down while another man removed a hook with his bare hands. and then they take the shark put it back in the water and watch it swim away. >> that's an hombre there. >> that's manly, stupid. a new recall involves a choking hazard. a toymaker of little tykes issued a warning for more than 1 1/2 million toy workshops and toolsets. the consumer product safety commission says the toys have oversized plastic nails that might cause your young toddler to choke. it's happened twice so far so they both recovered but if you have one, take a look at it. 6:27. coming up, some bad news for wine lovers. >> yeah. why a certain grape may not
6:27 am
have as many health benefits as we first thought. >> plus, cop cars vandalized in the bay area. how a homeless man reportedly stopped the smashing spree. >> and a man is killed after a shooting at a local motorcycle club. what police believe may have led up to it coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:31 am
right there in east palo alto so at this point we don't know who was killed. we can see from chopper 5 that there is a motorcycle on the ground so we know there was a motorcyclist involved. we also know from chp that one arrest has been made. so as far as traffic goes in the area, university again blocked in both directions. there is debris all over the roadway. and the investigation is going to be ongoing for a while because this is a fatal accident. so willow road is going to be your best alternate in the meantime. we are following a developing story at the bay bridge. very busy this morning. there was an accident at the base of the incline. for a while a couple of lanes were blocked. they just cleared that four-car crash to the right shoulder. unfortunately, the damage has been done. it is backed up all the way into the macarthur maze at least a 20-minute wait or so to get you on the span. they turned the metering lights on a half hour early. we are continuing to watch the bay bridge and city streets. we'll have it all coming up in traffic in a fuller report in a
6:32 am
few minutes. a woman is behind bars accused of vandalizing several patrol cars. >> the san francisco police say a homeless woman armed with a knife smashed the windshield, you see them here, of three marked patrol cars. this is on bryant street here in the city. it happened about two hours ago. a homeless man reportedly stopped the woman with pepper spray. police arrested the suspect and charged her with felony vandalism. motorcycle club shooting is now a murder investigation. and oakland police say revenge may be the motive. anne makovec is in oakland where the victim was gunned down inside a garage. she joins us with more. >> reporter: police are not releasing the name of the victim yet but he appears to be fairly popular. we stopped by the motorcycle club the east bay motorcycle club earlier this morning and there's already a memorial set up, several candles burning. here at the oakland police station, police are trying to crack this case. they have not said whether or not they have a suspect in
6:33 am
custody yet. you're looking at some video from last night. the shooting happened around 9:30. the east bay dragons motorcycle club is on 88th and international. police say a man was shot several times in the garage of the motorcycle club. he was taken to the hospital where he died soon after. now, the theory that police are work off of right now is that the suspected shooter may have been kicked out of the club earlier in the evening and then perhaps he returned and then shot this man several times. we know that there were dozens of people waiting outside of the hospital as this man was dying overnight. again, it does appear to be a fairly popular member of the club. but police are not confirming whether or not he was indeed a member of the club. now, you may remember there was a shooting last memorial day. a man and a woman were shot at a sideshow in east oakland outside of the club. and at that point members of
6:34 am
the eats bay dragon asked the media to be sure we didn't say that it had any involvement with the east bay dragons. they were very concerned about their image at that point. it doesn't appear as if these shootings have anything to do with one another at this point. but we'll keep you posted as police release more information. back to you. >> thank you. it looks like oakland will be able to put more police on the streets very soon. the city is getting some money all from a federal grant. mayor jean quan will be with representative barbara lee at a news conference to give us the details. the grant is coming from the u.s. justice department's community oriented policing services program. more on that coming up this morning. the woman accused of murdering a nursing student will be back in an alameda county courtroom this morning. >> giselle esteban is expected to enter a plea in the case of michelle le a former friend of hers. esteban did not enter a plea in her previous court appearance last week. ♪ [ music ] in the meantime more than 100 people turned out in
6:35 am
oakland yesterday for a vigil in le's memory at samuel merritt university where le was in the nursing program. yesterday marked four months from when le was last seen alive. a lot of volunteers attended the vigil. >> just be there for compassion, narrow down where they should be searching and just be there for that family. they needed the help. and i'm part of the community and it doesn't get any more community than that. >> le's pam family plans to hold private memorials in the future. samuel merritt university plans to set up a scholarship in le's honor. >> let's kick it back to liz about the now on that deadly motorcycle accident down in east palo alto. elizabeth is this. >> as you mentioned this happened on city streets. it all started with a police chase. it ended in what we learned is now a fatal crash. so this is actually impacting traffic to and from the dumbarton bridge. the actual scene where the
6:36 am
accident happened is right there at that intersection of university and bay. university is shut down in both directions between bay and runnymede streets so you're going to want to use willow road as your alternate in the meantime. again, this investigation looks like it could continue for a while. we have heard from some members of the kcbs phone force that there was a lot of debris on the road. the road is a mess in the area. a motorcyclist was involved. again we are still trying to gather details. we have a news crew on the scene, as well. so at this point, we don't know exactly the person that was killed. we just know it was started with a police chase. again it ended with a fatal crash at that intersection. coming up, we are also going to get a check of the bay bridge where it's been a busy morning there, as well. in the meantime, here's lawrence with your forecast. >> why traffic and weather together. we are going to see plenty of sunshine outside around the bay area today a gorgeous day all the way to the coastline. we are heating things up in a hurry and what a nice shot we
6:37 am
have for you this morning. this is the type of weather we like at this time of the year. you get the offshore winds going and clearing out the skies and we get hot temperatures around the bay area, very mild out there right now. many places already up into the 60s. it looks like maybe a patch or two of fog at the coastline and by the end of the afternoon that's all gone. these temperatures running well above the average and looking at the warmest day this week. by the afternoon the temperatures soaring a good 12 to 13 degrees above average. some mid-90s in the hottest spots inland. find 70s into san francisco. and yeah even some hot weather into santa rosa. 10 degrees above the average at 98 degrees. great weather ahead folks but things look cooling down. we'll have more on that in a couple of minutes. the idea of moving the metropolitan transportation commission offices is getting another hearing this morning. the mtc is talking about using bridge toll money to move from oakland to san francisco.

is. there is a local filling station that's giving away gas. >> okay! well, the freebie could cause a traffic mess in one part of san francisco. stephanie chuang is on the run this morning. she has the latest on all this free gas. fill us in. >> reporter: yeah. well, hey, if we're going to be on the run, free gas is a good story to go to. it's the shell station on mission street. you can get up to 15 gallons of regular gas. and at 3.89 that's a good deal over $58 worth of gas. over there you see san francisco police officer there four to five of them out here. they are getting ready for the pandemonium that will be here shortly. this starts at 7:00 and goes for 90 minutes to 8:30. so he is going to be directing folks. people will come here, they will line up, you can only get the regular grade and the 15 gallons. you can't buy any more. but if you get here again it's going on for 90 minutes and right now pretty quiet. that's because media couldn't reveal the location until this

6:43 am
good morning. well, we are continuing to follow this breaking news out of east palo alto. a police pursuit end in a deadly crash on city streets. chopper 5 is up over that intersection of university
6:44 am
avenue and bay. so university is shut down and has been since about 5:15 this morning between bay and runnymede streets so this accident was involving a motorcycle. again, we have learned that one person -- we don't know who yet -- has been killed. so there is an investigation continuing. they will likely be out there for a while. so in the meantime, while university is shut down, use willow as your alternate. we have a news crew on the scene so we'll be bringing you a live report from the scene very shortly. in the meantime, it's been a very busy morning at the bay bridge. we actually had a four-car crash just past the pay gates. actually past the metering lights, where all those lanes merge together. that was cleared to the shoulder a while ago. unfortunately, they had to turn the metering lights on before 6:00 which is at least a half hour earlier than usual. so we are left with a very big backup this morning at the bay bridge. has been out there for a while, backed up to the macarthur maze. so let's talk alternates for
6:45 am
that. the san mateo bridge actually looks okay. if you have to be somewhere on time this morning, bay bridge will be busy. it takes a long time for things to clear up. that will have a ripple effect well into the morning commute. it's a "spare the air" day so use mass transit. so far we just checked in with bart, systemwide no delay. ace is off to a great start, as well. bart, ace, muni and caltrain no problems. it's been a different story on the roads this morning. motorcycle crash westbound 4 approaching somersville road. it's cleared to the right but slow traffic behind it. your antioch ride is slow all the way coming off the bridge and westbound 580 sluggish as well out of the altamont pass. that drive time is now 24 minutes from the wind turbines towards to the dublin interchange. let's check your forecast with lawrence. >> we got great news and weather a lot of sunshine coming our way. it is a fantastic fall day
6:46 am
outside all the way to the coast with plenty of sun. the mount vaca cam looking good as the sun is just about to come up on the hottest day of the week. as those temperatures are expected to soar around much of the bay area, especially inland, i think those numbers easily up well into the 90s by the afternoon. so it's a very mild start around the bay area. mostly clear skies, and it looks like a "spare the air" day for today but this will probably be it as we are going to see cooler air and a sea breeze kicking in toward the next couple of days so enjoy the sunshine and the clear start this morning. couple patches of fog at the beaches. but by the afternoon plenty of sunshine every where even at the coast. you will see 90s inland, 80s inside the bay and 60s at the beaches. high pressure in control. offshore winds continuing overnight. that will break down toward tonight. that means some cooler temperatures for tomorrow. then you have this guy that's going to push in toward the weekend. that means some much cooler temperatures and maybe some rain as we head in toward next week. temperatures looking like this. 92 degrees morgan hill today.
6:47 am
90 campbell and cupertino. 85 in fremont. 65 degrees and sunny in pacifica. mid-90s in the hottest spots inland by the afternoon. as high as 90 in the napa valley, 94 fairfield, and 93 in pleasant hill. in the north bay you can expect 92 degrees in santa rosa. san francisco looking gorgeous. sunny, 76 degrees there. and 83 in oakland. next couple of days temperatures will start to cool off a bit more cooling over the weekend with a few more clouds getting a little unsettled the beginning of next week. maybe we start to talk about some rain. back to you. >> thank you. a number of countries in europe are making moves to keep their debt under control. >> that's good news. here to talk about it now jason brooks with kcbs and good morning, jason. >> reporter: good morning, frank. good morning, grace. and one of these days, we won't be leading off with another business update with greece but that really is top of mind on wall street. international debt inspectors are in greece today to look at recent austerity moves by that government to figure out
6:48 am
whether or not that will fit into the plan for the eurozone an whether greece will get a third bailout and prevent it from defaulting. that's driven the stock market volatility over the past sessions. in the past couple of days the blue chips up over 400 points after losing nearly 700 last week. manufacturing continues to weaken over the summer. durable goods orders in august falling a tenth of a percent from the month before although july way a solid month a gain of more than 4%. a big decline in automobile orders down 8.5% although we saw a strong and in for computers, machinery, communications and equipment, a strong demand for them. a key part of durable goods orders, future of business investment rose 1.1% so that's a good signal going forward. all eyes on amazon today. a big event in new york city in which the company is expected to debut its own tablet device.
